    Samsung and Sprint FINALLY released the OTA Update and here it is everyone.
    This was deodexed using dxsidias Rom Kitchen. Huge thanks to him as well.

    There are a few changes to this rom over a bone stock experience.

    Credits List:
    Samsung And Sprint for the OTA Update FINALLY
    Dxidias for ROM Kitchen
    TEAM ROGUE for the Recovery Image

    Whats included in this Stock ROM?
    Based on OTA FF18 Samsung/Sprint Release
    Using My FE22 Kernel with CWM Rogue Recovery
    Ext4 Mount & Format ALL Updater Script
    Gingerbread Update Binary
    100% Deodexed
    Zipaligned
    Added init.d Support
    Optimized
    Slightly Modified Build.prop
    Added Zipalign on boot script
    Added Fix Permissions on boot Script
    Added GPU Render Script
    Added Zipalign Binary
    Added Fix Permissions Binary
    Added CM9 Busybox with Run Part Support
    Added Root and SU Binary
    Removed All Test and Spy Apps

    Question and Answer:
    Why is the OTA not deodexed by default?
    I have no idea. It should be. Some "developers" (Three that I know of) dont take the time to deodex a rom, they rather leave it Odexed cause its less time they have to spend on the rom it self. I always recommend deodex over odex cause its a less lazy appoarch and its much faster.

    Are there any benefits Odexed Roms offer over Deodexed ROMs?
    There is one benefit to odexed roms and thats dalvik management. When you wipe cache on a deodexed rom the first boot takes forever. On a odexed rom this isnt the case. This is the only real benefit odex offers over deodex.

    WARNING: I AM NOT RESPONISBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE YOU CAUSE BY FLASHING THIS ROM.

    This is very very basic stock rom with minor tweaks. This rom is for starter developers and themers. Or a user who wants to stick with a full touchwiz stock experience.

    Running this now. Works well but would love to get rid of the Sprint and Samsung bloat. Very nice and simple mod over stock.

    Nope. This was meant to be as close to stock as possible with minimal changes to it.

    I can't get this to flash into my phone for the life of me. I am having nothing but problems and I am not new to rooting and flashing. I couldn't get the stock FF18 to download from non-root then I tried to go to a Sprint store and have them to the USB one, that didn't work either so my last resort was to root. I am running EL29 rooted with Clockwork Mod and I can't flash this one nor the official one. I am running out of options any help would be greatly appreciated. PS I tried flashing both from ROM Manager and from Clockwork and no result. It says its a bad file.
